Here’s all the info that should get you ready to conquer YOUR terrain at your next mud run. Check out our FAQs if you still have a question and don’t hesitate to contact us.

terrain Mud Run Obstacles

What will I have to crawl over?

It will be tough. It will be fun.

And you will be proud to say you’re a finisher. Obstacles commonly seen at our events:

  • Mud. Yes. Plenty of it. And you will love crawling in it.
  • Monkey bars. They have an incline and there is water under them.
  • Cargo nets to climb. And navigate across.
  • Tubes to crawl through. With mud in them, anyone?
  • Walls to climb over. Some with holes you wiggle through. Some with ropes.
  • Balance beams. Not wide, and not dry if you fall off.
  • Hurdles are too easy. Can you jump blind-folded over hay bales?
  • Climbing walls to traverse.
  • Barbed wire to crawl under. You’ll get muddy.
  • Tire fields to run through. But with a fun, surprising twist.
  • And tire piles to climb over.
  • Strength tests. Don’t just run to train for terrain.
  • Mental tests. Conquering terrain is something you can do.

*All venues have different terrain and different requirements. And we keep building fun challenges, don’t be surprised when you see something that isn’t on this list!

Timing and awards

It IS a race, so it’s timed!

Your time will be slower than a 5k or 10k race, but it’s always nice to see how you rank compared to fellow athletes.

We use chip timing so you can see how fast you really are and we provide you with a free printable ‘finisher certificate’ online after the race. If you want to be eligible for an award, sign up for the competitive 9am wave.

No matter what wave you’re in, you WILL be timed and you will be able to see your results and ‘finisher certificate’ online. The only advantage of running in the 9am wave is the course will be clear for some serious fast running, and you will be eligible for an award.

Awards for the following:

  • Overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the 10k and 20k. (All courses are timed.)
  • Best dressed team (if we can see it through all the mud!). Make sure to wear something fun!
  • Most awesome photo on the course! Submit your pics on our website after the race. We’ll post this one for everyone to see!

Please let our staff remove your timing chip after finishing your race. All unreturned chips will result in public humiliation… and a $20 fee.

Packet pickup

Get your race packet early and be ready.

Each location usually has a Thursday and Friday packet pickup. Check the details for the race you’re going to. You can also get your race packet Saturday before your wave starts but please arrive at least one hour before your wave starts.

You MUST have the following before your race packet is released:

  • Picture ID, OR
  • your Race Check-in sheet (emailed the week of the race)

At packet pickup you’ll receive:

  • Timing chip to keep track of how fast you are
  • Awesome terrain race shirt
  • Free drink coupon for after the race

Post race

Showers, food, souvenirs, and contests!

Bring some extra cash and plan to hang out with friends for awhile.

Showers to rinse off the mud? You bet, and plenty of them. Don’t forget to bring a towel and a change of shoes!

Remember to go grab the gear you checked before the race so you can relax at the terrain village with friends and family. Speaking of family, bring everyone for free* and spread out a blanket. There is plenty of room for them while they’re cheering you on through the final exciting obstacles!

Get on your website and check for results and photos and see if you were smiling!

We will have vendors with great food and drinks. Plan on listening to music and cheering on athletes while you get some lunch and a drink!

Race Swag! We have so much sweet terrain gear, it needs its own event!
